Man, Dublin’s All-City label is pretty lucky there’s an almost inexhaustible amount of beat music coming out of Southern California; their LA Series 10″ releases could potentially continue on until Armageddon hits and wipes us all out. Closing out the series’ first year, the imprint has enlisted Brainfeeder’s resident lady producer, Tokimonsta, and fresh face Mike Gao to come together on a slab of wax called LA Series 8 (out now), from which “Park Walks” is taken. On the track, Tokimonsta interplays a lumbering beat and an obtuse bassline with a few ethereal vocal samples to make up some sort of punch-drunk alien groove. More and more sounds are heaped onto the bulbous rhythm as the song progresses, giving “Park Walks” the sort of frenzy we’re sure very few walks in the park have.
